The tragedy — this person house went up in flames during this very hard season of our lives.
Yesterday as hurricane Laura was hitting us with some rainfall this tragedy unfolded. I looked out my front door and saw a plume of dark smoke. At first I thought it was a cloud but then I realized to my dismay that it must be a fire. About 1/2 a mile from my home, this person’s life was going up in smoke.
The neighborhood came out to witness the tragedy, I do not know the details of what happened. The firemen were there and doing all they can, but the blaze was not abating quickly.
We all just stood there praying the fire would just go out.
From my vantage point it seemed like what remained was just some of the framework. Someone’s life was up in smoke. I could not sleep last night as I thought of this person/family, they awoke in the morning with everything intact and this night it was all gone!
I feel for them in the current season of our lives and not knowing what happened or their circumstances. I had never witnessed a fire and it disturbed me so I could not sleep.
Here with my WP family, so many of us trust God for our daily bread. And we thank God that we have come into His Kingdom and His grace, love and care.
May our Savior, Jesus Christ continue to guide and protect us and may we remember to lift up this person/family in our prayers.
